Hundreds of people turned out to protest Arizona's immigration law.
As arguments wrapped up at the Supreme Court.
Everybody now trying to read into those snippets of what has trickled out from the -- from the court yesterday.
A lot of course is at stake last night governor Jan Brewer.
She has championed this law in her -- -- at the center of this fight from the very beginning.
And she told Greta last night that -- thought it was a great day.
In court yesterday Nash had a chance to sleep on the whole thing is he joins us this morning good morning governor brewer good -- -- is always.
Thank you Martha it's -- to be with you and so now that it's on again and -- sort of you know thought about the things that you heard in court yesterday.
Are you at all are you cautious about you know what the outcome will be and what do you what do you weigh in terms of what they said yesterday in and second Reynolds take a look at a couple of the -- Well let me Begin by just -- -- that was a great day yesterday and that we.
Presented a wonderful -- and I slept really good last night and today of course we know that we always have to be.
Our costs as we can't take anything for granite but I am very -- left that I feel very very positive.
Let's take a look at some of what justice Sotomayor said first and I'm gonna follow that with chief Justice Roberts she said.
Two -- late day who's obviously the council for the White House is that you can see that it is not selling very well she's -- she's -- to have.
Why it try to help with something else and that that can't -- -- encouraging -- to hear from the justice when -- and she he she you know that after on the health care.
In terms of his representation on that as well and here we have Chief Justice John Roberts -- comments yesterday in court.
It's not an effort to enforce federal law.
It is an effort to let you know about violations of federal law whether or not to enforce them is still entirely up to you it seems to me.
That the federal government just doesn't want to know who is here.
Illegally or not at the justice that does is Robert's comments were or particularly telling him is saying.
That what you what you're -- would do does not get in the way of the federal law as they have proposed it it's sort of you know hands them a piece of the puzzle right.
Exactly I think that's what we've been trying to say all along and of course the justice may be -- added a lot better than -- I've been saying it but.
You know we just lot of work together with the federal government.
And get better enforcement and and and and use our law enforcement and are -- -- is set.
To help them and of course we all know that.
Senate bill 1070 is -- federal law and the federal law is constitutional.
So I you know I just don't really.
Positive that no we're gonna get a good ruling from the Supreme Court.
You know I know one of the things that has affected you.
Perhaps a bit personally.
Is this idea that attends seventies -- it was all about racial profiling and that Arizona -- a racist state because it would promote this kind of legislation.
What do you think about that -- that.
Well that was very very troubling from the beginning because we knew -- that that.
I would this bill could be very well.
Received like a lightning rod and so I was very cautious and careful when the bill is going through the legislature.
To make sure that it didn't include racial profiling has been very hard -- mean spirited we are not races we are not tickets.
And -- today I think was made very very -- By the -- of the Supreme Court.
What he spoke to the solicitor general.
Asking him that this case is not about racial profiling is it.
And -- solicitor general responded no it is not yet they have they have not put that forth as the centerpiece of their argument in this case it you know I want to talk politics with you have for a moment and there have been some who say that if this is shot down.
That it could work to the president's benefit in the general election because it would it would fire up the Hispanic vote which is obviously very crucial.
To anybody who wants to win this election when he -- about that.
Well if it if it if -- lose on this certainly it's going to be very attractive to illegal of aliens that it.
Are in the state of Arizona and that are in America because obviously it says we're not going to be a nation of laws we're not gonna so important.
And and understand that we are the that we believe in the rule of law and that's pretty un American in my opinion.
So it's gonna play to those people -- -- going now with with the direction of them trying to scare I think the Serb population.
In in in our state in America that he is the administration is the answer.
It's unfortunate it's very unfortunate.
So we wait now I've told you do -- -- huge decisions immigration and health care which took an Arizona's.
And -- on the forefront about whether those issues indeed it is governor -- it's always good to have you here and America's Newsroom thanks for kind of what -- we help.
